    We have a pretty exciting new rumor to share with you guys regarding the Motorola X Phone. Supposedly, a senior Telstra executive has made some enthusiastic comments on the new device. According to the source of this intel, Hugh Bradlow, Chief Technology Officer for Telstra, (the leading carrier in Australia), recently commented the X Phone is a, "real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple". Additionally, he supposedly confirmed our previous reports that the Motorola X will be unveiled during the Google Developer Conference in May and will go on sale in July.

    Additionally, the former Marketing Manager for Motorola Mobility in Australia, Barry Smyth who recently moved to the US to lead the marketing push for the new device. Finally, an unknown Motorola source shared the new X Phone will have software features never seen before in a smartphone. Here's a quote,

    Well, that is certainly vague, yet supremely satisfying. It certainly sounds like Motorola/Google is going all out with this one, which will make for a truly thrilling Summer for mobile tech!

    Thanks for the tip, grenefroggie!

    the only way they can be more vague is if they said "it will be super duper awesome"

    I'll believe it when i see it. every mfg comes out and says they have the best thing since sliced bread and in all honesty NOTHING has been earth shatter in the smartphoen market for over 2+ yrs. Its all redos of the same stuff with beefed up hardware that is overkill and not needed.

    What was the greatest thing before sliced bread??

    A little bit better is earth shaking in their eyes.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    I agree for the most part. Game changing to me was Webtop/the laptop dock, the Samsung projector phone, the Nokia phones with the great cameras and camera software. And the Dell Streak and Samsung Note.

    And there are features on Galaxy phones not seen on others. BFD. Give me the best AOSP experience. If its not better than what can be done in CM10 or AOKP...then it fails.

    It sounds great and all.

    However, if there's no Qwerty keyboard, no sale here I'm afraid. :p

    Game changer? Don't tell me show me. Sorry for being skeptical but I fell for the thunderbolt and galaxy nexus (which was a good phone minus radios and vzw support). The X phone could potentially be awesome but I have to admit some thing just do not seem to add up.

    If the software is that great with motorola's hardware why sell it cheap? Motorola needs to make money and putting out their potentially best phone in years for pennies is not a good way to do that. SO that makes me think that either it will cost more than the 199 off contract (price for nexus 4) or they cut corners somewhere to justify the costs.

    199 off contract? now youre just dreaming lol... plus as good as this phone is they'll just drop another months later claiming it to be so much better than the last... there last 4 major releases have been their best ever and flagship devices... now I'm not saying this phone won't go above and beyond and be a legitimate contender to apple and samsung but who knows what those 2 drop in this years releases

    me personally I'm looking for a phablet and the note 2 wins that category easily; in my eyes.. and by phablet I mean all the added features, not just screen size
